Off-Road Skills with On-Road Thrills.
It may have been in the showrooms for all of 5 minutes, but already suspension guru Eibach has a full complement of suspension products for the new BMW X1.
Although BMW has obviously set out to endow the ‘soft roader’ with impressive on-road ability, the new Eibach products remove the compromises of the standard suspension set-up to endow the capable Bavarian with an incredible degree of steering precision and driver feedback. Knowing that most X1s won’t see much more off road action than a muddy puddle, this new kit offers drivers the chance to really exploit the superb chassis.
For those looking for the ultimate balance of ride comfort and response, The Pro-Kit lowered springs work in harmony with the factory damper units to lower the car by approximately 30mm. This improved centre of gravity reduces body roll and improves turn-in. Thanks to the spring’s unique progressive winding, developed by Eibach’s F1 engineers, compliance is retained almost at factory levels. Appearances however are not, with the car taking on a far more aggressive stance and the wheels really filling the arches. In-keeping with BMW’s reputation for longevity, the kit comes with a comprehensive 5 year warranty on fit and finish. Perfect for UK roads! The kit is priced at £139.00+ VAT.
The final finishing touch can be added with the application of the Eibach’s hub-centric Pro-Spacer kit. These are available in a selection of widths to either increase the track of the standard wheels to improve the car’s handling or to allow the precise fitment of aftermarket alloy wheels whilst retaining factory offsets. A great idea in either case. Prices start at just £38.00 + VAT per pair.
The X1 may already be the perfect off road/on road compromise, but for any drivers looking to have more fun on the latter, the new Eibach products are the perfect upgrade!
